The Fire Protection Systems Handbook is the first book that moves beyond the traditional water based suppression systems into the advances in the field, providing the user with the most practical, up-to-date information on systems such as: Clean Agent, Dry Chemical, and Carbon Dioxide.

The Fire Protection Systems Handbook is the first book on its kind to advanced topics in suppression systems analysis and design are discussed with an aim toward developing a performance based understanding of suppression technology. Automatic sprinkler systems are covered from the standpoint of predicting actuation times, reviewing numerical methods for hydraulic analyses of pipe flow networks and understanding the phenomenology involved in water spray suppression. Special suppression systems are covered from the standpoint of two phase and non-Newtonian pipe flow and simulations of suppression agent discharge and mixing in an enclosure.
